Blend In With Ceramic Braces
Clear braces come with tooth-colored ceramic brackets which blend in with your natural smile.
Giving You a Clear Alternative to Metal
Also referred to as clear braces, tooth-colored braces, or aesthetic braces, ceramic braces are smaller than ever and designed to blend in with your natural smile.
Dr. Robin Lozman, Dr. Michael Lozman, and our team at Lozman Orthodontics use ceramic braces to correct your bite and align your smile the same way as metal braces, which is why many older teenagers and adult patients in Latham prefer this subtler option for reaching their smile goals.
Differences Between Ceramic & Metal Braces
Ceramic and metal braces function similarly to each other. Both require brackets, wires, and elastic bands to control the precise movements necessary to straighten your smile. Both options also tend to be equally effective in typical smile alignment cases.
Ceramic braces are popular because they’re less noticeable than metal brackets. And contrary to popular belief, ceramic brackets won’t stain.
Sometimes the clear, elastic ties used to hold the wires in place can stain. However, our team at Lozman Orthodontics changes out your elastics at every adjustment appointment.
So long as you maintain a good oral hygiene routine and follow the treatment plan designed by Dr. Robin Lozman or Dr. Michael Lozman, you shouldn’t worry too much about giving up your morning cup of coffee or evening glass of red wine.
Cost of Ceramic Braces
Your treatment fee at Lozman Orthodontics will vary depending on the complexity of your orthodontic treatment and the treatment option you choose.
Ceramic brackets are more expensive than metal brackets because of the cost of materials. Placing and removing ceramic braces also requires more attention, technique, and time from our experts at Lozman Orthodontics.
Our doctors will determine a treatment plan based on your specific orthodontic needs, and our team will do everything we can to accommodate you and your budget. We offer flexible payment plans and accept CareCredit and LendingPoint, and we’ll verify your insurance and submit claims for you.
Our goal is to inform you and provide you with the most effective, compassionate orthodontic care possible. Our treatment coordinators will be happy to discuss the cost of treatment and any insurance benefits you may have during your consultation at our office in Latham.
